The New Cape. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 2 April 1898
The New Cape. Now that exaggeration is quickly dis appearing from sleeves, the most extra vagant Hem iu d rests is The vape. It riots in every possilble fantastic form, and is overladen with glittering trim mings uf every ?description. It too ofteu jute straight out from the neck in a rigid line, devoid of grace, obscuring the dainty curve of the ishoiildors. and is furnished- with au immense frill which makes the sliort-nedked look apoplectic. The rampant sequin is heavily shower ed over the assertive cape of the mo ment and further glitter is supplied by jet, steel, silver, gold, and crystal. On ihe Whole the fashionable cape com bines the maximum of weight and ' stulliness' albout the neck with the minimum of proteetiveue-?s. It is not meant to protect but only to adorn, and, truth to tell, it signally fails in its mis sion. The ornate tape -imparts .-in ail' of fashion, it is true, but il renders the figure top-heavy 'in appearance, and throws it completely out of drawing.
Pegamoid. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 2 April 1898
Pegamoid. We seem on the eve of a great change in all mailers relating to tlie furnishing and decorating of our homes, a change which will not only cause our houses to always look dainty aud fresh, but will greatly lessen the work of our .-servants. The beneficent fairy which is to per form this miracle is pegamoid, a pre paration lately invented, which can be applied to anything aud everything with truly marvellous results. Tlie most, delicately-coloured fabrics after treatment, with pegamoid are rendered proof against dust;- damp, and ret— in fact, against all the ills from which they now suffer. For instance, wall papers .«o treated can be washed and scrubbed without harming iu the least their surface or colouring. Agaiu. ma terials of all kinds become more lasting after the application of pegamoid, and can be cleansed without requiring to be unpicked lirst. By the use of this pre paration, cloth which has been treated to resemble morocco and other l-\-u liens I'.-ra l)e made to ...
Raiment Ladies' Hats. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 2 April 1898
Raiment Ladies' Hats. Ladies' hats form the most recent ob jects of medical criticism aud attack. A doctor lately wrote to the uewrtpapers to say that cases of inveterate headavln: in women could be traced to the wear Ing of large hats. -When the hats were replaced by presumably lighter ones. the headaches ceased. What puzzles one iu this case is the, fact that ladies' hate a« a rule are not heavy things at all. Indeed, many of them err on the side of giving too feeble protection to 'the head in cold weather. Headaches are a very curious and complex -form of affection, since they arise from very many different causes.
Fashionable Colours. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 2 April 1898
Fashionable Colours. Pink in various tints is a very fa voured colour in the old country .this summer, and among the beautiful dyes are anemone, also known as valesque. an old rose pink ; Venus, a delicate fiosh tint; azalea, a soft rose tinged with silver, like ,the 'dawn' tint of other seasons : Shepherdess aud Louis XIV. pinks arc tinged with faintest mauve, like the old Pompadour and lilac shades, and still deeper tones of this exquisite colour copy tlie hues of rho orchid, chrysanthemum, and sweet piNi blossom. ' It cannot 'be said that due particular colour is more fashion able than auy other. A faint gray green and mixed reds certainly are in great favour. Cherry and coral reds' are a variation, but wliether 'these or quieter shades be preferred, all colours must be employed in a telling way. A Jiitle black gauze or other silken black transparencies are employed either to raise the soft, general colour, or to tone: duwn the very llaring shades. Rieli golden yellow is worn. Ge...

J. M. Barrie's Early Press Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 2 April 1898
J. 51. ltarrie's Early Press Life. The intimation in the ' lllustiaied London News' that Mr. Barrie— -witk t Dr. Iio'bertson iNieoll— is going to j America in September gives peculiar j interest to th'is account of his literary beginnings an a journalist in Notilng uaun.

New Use for X Rays. Detection of Adulteration. We cannot all of us .breaik our bones, incur bullet wounds, or indulge in renal calculi for the purpose of demonstrating the value of Dr. ltontgen's discovery. ' It is satisfactory, therefore («iys the ' Pall Mall Gazette') to uote uliat -i new field of utility ihas been found for the X rays, in wJiieh everybody, except Sir Wilfrid Lawson, can test their merits. Samples of wine of various degrees of purity .have recently beeu submitted to light from Orookes's tubes, the result being recorded on duly sensitised plates. In each case where the liquor was un- ' sophisticated no obstacle was offered to i tihe passage of the rays, but aJl t.he ; adulterated specimens yielded blurred and spotted pictures, the foreign ingre dients being less permeable by the rays | tiian the pure juice of the grape.

You must know that when I wax a mere boy I was an actor of 6inall parts jn the provinces, became a member of Harry Sullivan's company, and had a good den! of -experience un der my father and in other directions.

Improving Dairy Herds. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 2 April 1898
fimproving Dairy Herds. Our Agricultural Department has been making phenomenal advances lately. It is now reported that the Acting Agent-General of this colony has been instructed to secure some animals of the best dairying breeds lor the agricultural colleges, the in tention being, according to the Min ister, to found a good stud in the colony, by which dairymen and others can improve their herds. This is advancing the interests of the dairy farmer in a most necessary and advantageous way. To make the dairying industry pay, one of the first essentials is to secure the very best animals, in order that the time and money spent in caring for the herd may not be expended on worth less stock. It costs no more to keep a good cow than a bad one ; every farmer recognises this, but as he can not, in many insiauces, afford the great expense of securing a good herd, he has to be content to struggle on with more or iess inferior animals. This in an evil that the Minister evidently hopes to ove...
